The Sweat Society UNLIMITED MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP
The Sweat Society membership is a non contract re-ocurring monthly payment that allows the user to access The Sweat Society. The membership is to be used by the holder only and cannot be shared.
You have a choice of two dates for your membership payment to be taken – 1st or 16th of the month. If you start on a date other than these we will need to prorata the amount to streamline the dates. Your pass will start on the date of purchase. SS membership is a rolling monthly payment. For example, if you purchase you choose SS membership date to be on 1st March, your SS membership will automatically renew on 1st April (see “Billing Cycles” below). Once your new SS monthly membership starts, you will have access to your Eligible Classes for such new for the coming month.
You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use for payment. We automatically will bill the SS monthly membership fee to your Payment Method each SS monthly membership cycle until your SS monthly membership is cancelled or terminated.
SS CLASS CARDS & DROP INS
SS class card & drop in holders receive the number of classes commensurate with the package/service purchased. Such classes may be redeemed until such time that the SS service is exhausted whether through consumption or expiry.
The Sweat Society makes no guarantee on the availability of classes as access to classes is on a space-available basis.
SS PACKAGE EXPIRY
Your SS Package starts on the date that you attend your first class and you have 6 months to do so from date of payment.
By starting your SS UNLIMITED MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP, you authorise us to charge you a monthly fee at the then current rate. Increases in the current rate will be notified with 1 month’s notice. We will inform you by e-mail or other form of communication.
The Sweat Society Membership Billing Cycle.
When you sign up and purchase your SS UNLIMITED MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP, your first pass cycle will be billed immediately. Your membership will auto-renew on the same date each month (either 1st or 16th of the calendar month). If the payment is failed payment will be automatically tried the next day.
Unless expressly stated to the contraty herein, or as provided by applicable law, payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
This policy applies to all products sold on The Sweat Society website i.e. packages of sessions as well as single classes and unlimited memberships and offers. However, following your cancellation of your SS monthly membership you will continue to have access to the studio through to the end of your paid SS monthly cycle.
You may edit your Payment Method information by logging into your Mindbody account and updating accordingly. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information, provided that you have not cancelled your account in accordance with these Terms (see, “Cancellation” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
You may terminate your SS unlimited monthly membership at any time with at least 1 month prior notice ahead of a renewal date. For example, if your next renewal date is 16th September, you need to cancel by 15th September in order to avoid being charged for the next month. Note that if you do terminate your SS monthly membership, you will be subject to current membership rates upon your return.
In order to cancel your membership you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org – if you cancel without informing the SS you are still responsible for any payment outstanding.
SS class cards, drop ins and/or Introductory offers only give access to the class for which you signed up (at the specified time and date). You are responsible for paying cancellation fees of £13 on classes with a waitlist/1 class credit for no show.
